I don’t know if it’s just that I’m sick, but maybe not because Kelly thought the same, but this is a really bland/weak tea. The candycanes are still charming, though.

The cats dipped their noses in this and sneezed and I can’t say I was too heartbroken to pour it out. :/ Weirdly, it was the xmas one I was most excited about! Enjoyed Sleigh Ride last night much more, but we’ll see how that one goes for the second cup.

Teach me how to enjoy Sleigh Ride! :P
But I can honestly see how you would find this weak, too. The black tea isn’t there and it’s mostly vanilla-something with a pinch of peppermint.

Cavocorax

Aww. Too bad you guys didn’t care for it. I liked it more than Sleigh Ride, but I wanted something sweet and lightly minty.

Ozli

Yeah, I don’t tend to go for anything LIGHTLY mint. :P But I actually had it again today when I was intending to make Sleigh Ride (unmarked baggies!!) and liked it more this time. Not MUCH more, though. :P

CrowKettle, I’ll have to have it again so I remember what I liked! ;)

CrowKettle

If you enjoy Baileys, this, along with Read My Lips (which tastes/smells like after eights)are somewhat improved by the addition imo :) I don’t know if it helps bring out the mint though.

Ozli

I do enjoy Baileys!! But it fights back. :P Read My Lips sounds great! (Now that I’m not afraid of chocolate in my tea anymore – at least in loose leaf, anyway.)

Bio

I drink a lot of tea (and coffee!) and do other things sometimes, like hug cats (3 black cats!) and homeschool a child (the Snick, Snickety Snickface the Sharkboy) and make art and draw things and watch too much television and pretend I’m not home when people knock on the door!

I LOVE A LOT OF THINGS.

My ratings probably skew high because of this, but I can’t help being optimistic, it is the natural way of things.
